    Just recieved a sms stating that I have won R950000 in a fifa promo. Called the number as I was curious to know the outcome of a claim. They asked cor reference number which I gave as NIZZA. They told me to call back and they will confirm the reference number. When I called back I was offered two ways of acquiring my winnings upon which I opted for a cheque. The guy on the phone thought me to be naive and asked for my name and details when I responded my name is spelt SAPS and we are tracking the call. The cops should be at you door in 30 seconds. The next think I heard was loud shouting, get out get out the cops are here and I burst out laughing.
